I pledge allegiance to the supercomputer of the United States of Data Mining. And to the dictatorship for which it stands, one nation, under Obama, unencryptable, with tyranny and injustice for all.
That's a Gallup poll, not the BLS numbers.
The ruse continues, 7.7% +146k (http://www.bls.gov/news.release/empsit.nr0.htm).Of course, there are 880k more people considered not to be in the labor force than last month (which the BLS obscures by forcing you to look at two labor reports rather than directly reporting on it in the most recent one).
According to Shadowstats our actual unemployment is around 23%: http://www.shadowstats.com/alternate_data/unemployment-charts
